“re-Source” – Christian Swenson & Friends play Human Jazz

A benefit for AS220 Youth Programs

This is not a dance performance, a sacred ritual or a play, nor a musical concert or a comedy show, yet it is in part all of these. It is also homage to the human medium and the spirit that connects us.

Join Christian & his friends as they co-create an evening of spontaneous performance.

“Human Jazz” is about playing the body, voice and imagination simultaneously; no set pieces, special costumes, recorded music, just humans playing. As a soloist Christian “disappears” into songs, animals, characters, body music, aliens, etc. The ensemble will play all together and in smaller groupings. The show will conclude with a participatory Balinese Kecak/Monkey Chant.

Contact Improvisation Jam

Every Sunday from 2 – 4:30pm ($5 – $8) at Velocity Dance in Seattle http://velocitydancecenter.org

(I help facilitate this weekly jam, one of my favorite places to dance!)C & Lisa1

The Contact Improvisation/Movement jam is an open event, welcoming everyone. Jams have been happening around the world since the 1980’s, and typically include people across a broad range of experience. It’s not a class, but usually includes people happy to explore at whatever level, discuss questions, and if asked, provide guidance. If you’re willing to explore in order to find your way, the jam is a great opportunity to practice and enjoy contact improvisation.
